  The Shanghai Job [read more]
  Move yer Bloomin' arse
  Orlando Bloom reinvents himself as a formidable action hero in this slick, high-stakes thriller set in Shanghai, that mixes the heist capers of The Italian Job with impressive action set pieces, and with the fighting skills from Ip Man alumni thrown in.

This dazzling Shanghai-set feature debut from Charles Martin (director of Skins and gripping TV crime drama Marcella) is from the team behind Mechanic Resurrection, Welcome To The Punch and Iron Man 3.

Bloom lights up the screen as the charismatic and not-to-be-messed-with Danny Stratton - a cross between Matthew Bourne and The Transporter. Entrusted with taking the ultra-valuable Zodiac Vase - 'the soul of China' - from Shanghai to London, Stratton's hi-tech crew are hijacked on their way to the airport in a nerve-shredding chase sequence - by the same gang who hit Stratton a year before and left his career in tatters. Bloom is brilliant as a man with nothing left to lose, who’ll stop at nothing to even the score - right up to a nail-biting, vase-tossing finale.

THE SHANGHAI JOB is released on EST & VOD on 29th JANUARY 2017 and on DVD 5th FEBRUARY 2017 by Signature Entertainment. Click above for the trailer (with Katy Perry song).
